6 issues that need to be addressed to make the PCEHR a success

PCEHR

Have you made up your mind? Are you going to sign up for the personally controlled e-health record (PCEHR)? It’s got a lot of potential, but the devil is in the detail. I feel six issues need to be sorted out as soon as possible to make it easier for consumers to take part:

  • Confidential patient data is potentially unsecure in the PCEHR Govt cloud
  • Too much risk & liability for health professionals
  • Uploaded PCEHR data will be used by Govt for other purposes incl data mining
  • 5-15 minutes extra per patient are needed to upload and manage online PCEHR data
  • Longer consults create higher fees & increased costs for patients
  • More red tape, difficult to understand rules and regulations

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment:
